A walk to Wood Point

Yesterday we took the opportunity of some welcome sunshine to take our visitors on a walk to Wood Point via the beach and woodland at Courtmacsherry.

As close to the edge as I dared!

Wood Point.  I didn’t know the name of this spot as it is not given any name on my recent Ordnance Survey map.  It was only by going to the OSI website and looking at the historic overlay from 1887-1913 that the name was given (though to add confusion the name “Land Point” is given in the even earlier 1829-1842 overlay).

The “Navigational Aid” – wearing its rust with pride!

Walking back through the woods, some bluebells…

The pressures of my work have been considerable of late and it was wonderful to be able to get away  – even if only for an hour or two, a real blessing it was.
